Writers produce articles and join writing sites to earn more income. This is referred to as passive income. A writer will join a writing site and share a percentage of revenue earned from advertisers with a writing site. Though, there are a number of writing sites around the web where you can earn money as a writer with a different resource. Instead of earning passive income you can earn real income. These writing sites pay writers to blog.
Bloggers are generally looking for a way to earn more income from their writing efforts. Getting paid to blog is an extremely attractive quality in any writing site. Blog posts are typically shorter than articles, they are more informal in most cases the editing and approval is fast and simple.
Writers and bloggers alike are attracted to these particular sites because the pay is generally good and its upfront pay as opposed to passive income which is seen with the majority of writing sites. The content is produced according to specifications given to the writer and after the blog post is completed and approved a payment is made.
A lot of writing sites that pay you to blog work as a middleman for a client that is looking for a blog for an advertising post. The client has content they need written and posted which they will pay for. The writing site takes a percentage of the client fee for connecting the writer and client together and the site will pay the writer for blogging.
The writing site that pays for blogging will try and to link a blog’s niche with the client blog request or advertisement as closely as possible. Paralleling the two will make certain there is a focused audience for the advertiser. This means that if you have a sports niche blog the clients you will see will typically be related to the sports genre. However, there are some blog niches that are general enough to be open to a variety of different clients. In this case you will see a number of different clients come your way as a writer which is an added plus. The general blog is great to make money writing blog posts because you have more advertising opportunities for matching up focused traffic.
I have used several of these and produced some posts that review them. I have written small snippets of my feedback for each of these sites that I have tried and my success with each.
These are several different writing sites that will pay you to blog;
ReviewMe is a site for product reviews and services. Advertisers are plentiful and payment is $20 to $200 depending on what blog post are produced.
I joined ReviewMe more than a year ago, but didn’t focus my efforts very well. About 4 months ago I revisited with gusto and have not received an assignment yet. The competition is fierce. However, the right blogger can certainly find success. The competition is tough because the payment is incredibly good. Most of the jobs in my category are $100 or more. Worth your time investment for the writer that would like to get paid to blog.
Payment is PayPal, check or they do have a Reviewme prepaid MasterCard.
About.com hires freelance writers for specific blogging categories with extremely competitive payment options. There is an extensive application process, but the pay and job security is definitely worth the investment.
